That github article makes a lot of sense about Cognitive Load.

Here's the flaw in it related to developers:
If you admit to having cognitive load while viewing some architectural phenomenon that most of the other team understands (because they use it every day) those developers will treat you as if you are dumb.
"Well, I understand it. It all makes sense to me," says lead dev while looking around the group and other followers nod their little heads.
So, unfortunately, no one says this stuff out loud.

Long ago (2002), we had a dev contractor working on a component for a web site.
He got a bit mixed up on understanding web session and how to handle it.
Some others got involved and everyone was confused.
They finally worked it out but it took them an extra week on a project running late already.

At the Post-Mortem, Dev Manager said, "Well, we know there are things we don't know."
"what don't we know," asked Dev contractor.
"Well, like the issues with session. We need to know more about that."
The dev contractor replied, "What don't we know about session? Ask me anything and I'll tell you the answer."
Hmmm | :|
